I used two chickens from Costco, roasted them about 1 hour 50 minutes, when cool took the meat off of the bones, simmered the bones and skin in chicken broth, i use just Aldies chicken broth, and drippings that were in the pan. (don't use water) simmer about 1 1/2 hours, or till meat and bones flavor the broth. I then I strained the broth for my soup. Be sure to used the drippings. I continued to make my soup, I added onions celery carrots, when veg's were done I added rice or noodles and some of the meat. It makes a lot, so I freeze some of the broth and add the rice or noodles or whatever I'm in the mood for when I take it from the freezer you will never have better soup, but don't skim off all of the chicken fat, that is what makes it good and cures a cold. (you can indulge one in awhile)I have a food saver so I freeze the broth in a plastic container and when it is frozen solid I remove from the container and vacuum pack it. I usually freeze 4 cup containers because it it just two of us. I also cube the cooked meat that I removed from the bones and vacuum pack that in two or three cup packages for further casserole. The only way to make good chicken soup is to roast the chicken. Enjoy!
